Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has said that he’s suffering from the poor start made by his team in the new season.

According to Argentine tactician, his focus is on Tottenham Hotspur and how to turn the fortunes of the North London club around this season despite the transfer rumours linking him with bigger European clubs like Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Manager Zinedine Zidane is under some sort of pressure at Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid and Pochettino has been mentioned as a possible replacement for the French football legend who has been able to overcome the recent scrutiny on him with two successive league wins in the Spanish La Liga.

The two straight wins have propelled Real Madrid to the top of the Spanish La Liga table.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still struggling to come to terms with the pressure of managing a big club like the Old Trafford outfit and Pochettino has been linked with his job if he fails to change the fortunes of the club he represented when he was a player.
